I’ll be talking with Jason V. Brock today on the Lovecraft eZine video chat, at 6pm EST. Jason is the author of the upcoming book Milton’s Children.
All Lovecraftians are welcome. If you wish to join the video chat, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . It’s easy; you just need a Google Plus account and a webcam.
OR, you can simply watch it LIVE (or the recorded version, later) by going to the Lovecraft eZine front page at 6pm EST every Sunday.
I want to clarify something: The main purpose of these Sunday video chats is to bring Lovecraftians together for great conversation. You don’t have to be an author to join us — just a fan!
Pass it on!
I am enjoying Milton’s Children. Here’s a synopsis:
A seafaring expedition to the Antarctic takes a detour during their return home to investigate a chain of uncharted islands. The landing party finds amazing animals – including gigantic, undiscovered species of what seem to be either very bizarre birds or flying reptiles. They break up into two groups to explore the landscape, and when one group fails to return, the others decide to camp on the beach for the night and wait for a helicopter rescue in the morning. . .
When the chopper arrives, there is no one to be found – only a gruesome aftermath, and the scientists’ cameras and notes. Upon reviewing some video taken by the original party, the few remaining crew members learn that these creatures are much more than anyone could have imagined.
“Fun and clever and full of storytelling energy. You are bound to like this one.”
—Joe R. Lansdale (Edgar Award winning Author, The Bottoms and Edge of Dark Water)
“This richly textured novella is a triumph—a splendid fusion of horror and science fiction, of the cosmic and the human. It fulfills the promise of Jason V Brock’s earlier work and establishes him as a force to be reckoned with in contemporary weird fiction.”
—S. T. Joshi (World Fantasy Award winning Author, H. P. Lovecraft: A Life and The Weird Tale)
